GOP Lawmakers’ Reality: They Won’t Cut Planned Parenthood

posted on December 4, 2018

POLITICO’s Alice Miranda Ollstein reports, “Congressional Republicans are giving up on years of promises to cut federal funding for Planned Parenthood as Democrats prepare to take control of the House, a major setback for the conservative movement after controlling both chambers of Congress and the White House for the past two years.” The president of the anti-abortion group Students for Life of America said, “It’s a huge frustration. We worked so hard to elect supposedly these pro-life Republican officials, and we expected results.” Miranda Ollstein adds that some anti-abortion groups are planning to defund Planned Parenthood through other avenues, like state laws, federal regulation, and the courts.
